“Wanna Bet?..Yup…Straight8 I wanna CombatBet!”…Now You Are Asking What the Hell? August 15, 2012

So I just had an opportunity to catch up with an old Marine buddy named Jason.  Jason owns Straight8 Photography.  He is a retired

Recon Marine and was an instructor with me at the Basic Reconnaissance Course in late 1990’s.  As I am talking, he mentions that his wife owns CombatBet.  I couldn’t believe it!  CombatBet is the “new” challenge coin.  For those unfamiliar, ‘challenge coins” have been around for years and are coins carried by people in units that identify their membership etc.  (too much history to explain).  Long and short, it sucks to carry 10 coins to hand out.  They are also expensive and not super customizable. I have been handed a half dozen of these over the last couple of years and didn’t know who was behind them!  If you are looking for either  a great photo or some kick ass poker chips, you have to take a spin by Straight8 Photography or CombatBet.com…BTW…if the pic looks familiar it is Jason with his daughter and was in the scrolling credits of Act of Valor…courtesy of Straight8…
